Easy Chicken & Dumplings

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 45 mins

This is so easy and so good...if you don't tell the dumplings are not made from scratch...they will never know. You can use more or less chicken broth, depending on how thick or thin you like it.

We really enjoyed this recipe. It was super quick...considering I didn't have to make a pot of chicken broth or spend a good portion of the morning making noodle dumplings. This recipe is a keeper for me. Thank you for posting it.

What a quick and easy way to make Chicken & Dumplings. Perfect for a cold day when you don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. The only thing I did different was to cut the tortillas into strips and then cut them cross wise to make one inch squares. Thanks for sharing, Terri Juwan.
